Reds learning how often they can use Broxton
CINCINNATI -- Reds reliever Jonathan Broxton was not considered available during an 11-inning loss to the Phillies on Thursday. Broxton's status for Friday against the Cardinals was unknown.

"It's put a little strain on him getting up and down, because in Kansas City he'd know for sure he'd close a game out," Reds manager Dusty Baker said. "He doesn't have that luxury here to do that. Whenever you get a new guy, you have to learn how to use him and what makes him tick or what makes him sore and how to preserve him. So, we're learning."

The Reds acquired Broxton on July 31 for a pair of Minor Leaguers.
